The match industry in Honduras was initiated by the Bendeck Family in the 30’s, under the name of Fábrica Nacional de Fósforos Águila. In 1961, two safety match companies in Honduras merged to form Honduras Fosforera, S.A. in order to manufacture and produce safety matches with wooden sticks for the Central American region.
Over the years, our company has been competitive with cutting-edge technology, improving its productive capacity to compete with markets like Sweden in the 30’s and mass markets like India now a days.
Today, it is one of two safety match manufacturers in the Central Americ, maintaining a globally competitive edge in its prices and high quality products. Besides the safety match production, our manufacturing plant has diversified in the production of wooden-based products such as popsicle sticks and other wooden products for the ice cream industry.
Since the eighties, Honduras Fosforera, S.A. exports its products to all Central American countries and has begun to export to Panama, Colombia and Mexico in recent years.
You can find our variety of products with each of our distributors in the Central America region.
